Rachel Halvorson Decor Ideas

Lighting. Get the lighting right. Put everything on a dimmer in order to control the mood.

Add Age. Incorporate antiques or one-of-a-kind items, so your house doesn’t look like a showroom.

Art. Collect artwork. There’s nothing that makes a home feel more lived-in and comfortable than art on the walls.

Scale. Watch your scale. Comfortable furniture doesn’t have to be bulky. Go for sleek but cozy pieces.

Think Layers. Layer textures. Don’t be afraid to mix textures in a room, especially if you have a neutral color scheme.

Simple Patriotic Vignette

This is such a classic way to add a warm welcome to a country hall or entry way.

Equestrian Art

Artwork with an equestrian theme is right at home in modern farmhouse interiors. I personally am partial to abstract works.

Cheerful Breakfast Nook

I’m crazy about the airy light mood the designer created in a small space.

A chic breakfast nook with curved banquette with nailhead trim, brass adjustable wall sconces, and vintage metal table. Aqua upholstery is gorgeous! Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating Tips. #breakfastnook #banquette #aqua #cottagestyle #vintagestyle

Gorgeous Texture

This space feels calm with the restrained neutral palette and the merging of different textures (rope, rustic wood, woven tobacco basket, linen…) and interest.

Rachel Halvorson Interiors

Beautiful farm house hanging porch swing bed! Rachel Halvorson designed this beautiful hanging swing bed for country musician Ronnie Dunn. Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating TipsThis beautiful Tennessee mountain cottage with Carpenter-Gothic-style and modern farmhouse interior design was featured here in Southern Living.

If you love shiplap, beadboard, planked wood, board-and-batten, and swaths of white paint, these interiors will be right at home on your Pinterest boards!

I love the neutral palette (which makes room for bold colorful statements like the rug in a bedroom below) and all the charm infused with vintage finds and natural materials.

Onward to lovely.

Is this the coziest sectional and stair landing on the planet?

“Signs point to YES.”

Cottage Bedroom

Modern farmhouse all white bedroom with shiplap walls and twin beds - found on Hello Lovely Studio. Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating Tips. #farmhousebedroom #whitebedroom #shiplap #twin #countrydecor #vintagestyle

If you are a shabby chic freak, then perhaps the chenille bedspreads and Frenchie looking twin beds are tugging at your heartstrings and nostalgic soul.

I personally love a  Beachy Swedish California flavor of shabby chic which you can score a
taste of in this treasure trove of lovely.

Cottage Bathroom

Modern farmhouse bathroom with sliplap, pedestal sink, vintage mirror - found on Hello Lovely Studio. Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating Tips. #cottagestyle #farmhouse #bathroom #rustic #shiplap #pedestalsink

I have not seen rustic open shelving quite like this flanking a pedestal sink, and it’s
killer genius. Notice the little hooks added for even more function and daily ease.

Rachel Halvorson, your mix mastery and small space pretty organization skills are the goat.

Tiny Bedroom

Charming small farmhouse bedroom with bold colorful rug and shiplap walls - found on Hello Lovely Studio. Rachel Halvorson Inspired Decorating Tips. #smallbedroom #farmhouse #cottagestyle #shiplap #attic

I had to stare at this bedroom above for a few moments to thoroughly take in the voodoo applied to this gorgeous tiny space with a great big bed and even grander style.

Looks like the room may not have even accommodated the headboard, and yet it can function as a comfy cozy sleeping space. (I pity the one who must do the acrobatics and workout entailed with wrestling a fitted sheet successfully, but it would burn some serious calories!)

    Love the fat cat! And the white ship lap. The gold kitchen faucet and the beautiful marble counter top looking out the beautiful windows. Who wouldn’t love washing dishes there?

    What a feast of good things today! I was especially drawn to the gold nightstand and luxurious wallpaper in that bedroom. The banquettes are great too, so stylish. Here’s to a great weekend!
